Ensure simplicity, scale, and security across your evolving environment
When business runs on data, efficient data management becomes a critical priority. With innovation the key to success, your team needs to be focused on leveraging new technologies, supporting strategic initiatives, and planning for what’s on the horizon next week, next month, and next year — not tied up with manual administrative and management tasks. That’s hard to do when data is fragmented and sprawling across cloud, edge, and on-premises storage locations in a continuously evolving environment.
Growing complexity also makes it hard to keep costs under control. Over provisioning, data migrations, operational inefficiencies, and inefficiently tiered storage capacity all rob your budget of badly needed funds. In fact, nearly one in five CIOs has made it a top-three priority to reduce or rationalise IT spending in 2021.1 With ransomware, malware, and other threats running rampant, you’ve also got to be able to meet data protection SLAs to ensure the rapid disaster recovery your business expects.
Your environment isn’t going to get any simpler — hybrid cloud, virtualization, SaaS, and edge will continue to expand and evolve as strategic mainstays of modern business. Instead, your approach to data management and data protection has to become more efficient.
- Optimizing costs and streamlining management for cloud storage
- Achieving centralized, scale-out data protection across your diverse environment
- Efficiently scaling the environment as new technologies come online
- Simplifying data protection for better resiliency with less staff effort.
In this white paper, learn how you can manage data more efficiently to drive greater value for your business.
The growing data management gap
For organisations to thrive, accelerate, and digitally transform, they need their data environment to keep pace with their business without letting costs get out of control. In reality, the gap between requirements and reality has only grown in recent years. This is due to several interrelated factors.
The more tools you use, the more complex and costly data management becomes. Poorly integrated and aligned solutions create silos that hamper visibility and productivity while increasing risk. That’s a real problem with typical legacy vendors.
- Some legacy vendors need an additional cloud gateway to transfer data to the cloud. They ask you to buy an external appliance
for cloud deduplication, another product for SaaS backup, and still more backup products for other specific functions,
applications, or locations. All of these add-ons expand cost and complexity.
- Other backup products require multiple interfaces to do regular tasks, slowing you down. These products still lack robust cloud
coverage, support for SaaS apps like Salesforce and Google Suite, and may use a separate product for container support.
Scalability is often an issue.
- Some of the other older backup products require multiple interfaces and products as well, but with a high cost. Customers can
be shocked by high individual renewal costs that add up to an unpleasant surprise for IT leaders still hoping to see ROI.
